I find amusing how the effects artists never bothered to give any kind of clothing to Thing, not even a speedo. I expect the character to have a really "solid" erection for comedic purposes, sometime in this film. Oh, who am I kidding, this is the personel of Fox that we're talking about.

To be fair, I do think Michael Chiklis is a pretty good Ben Grimm. Chris Evans does convey Johnny Storm's energy pretty well, so I guess he was alright.

 

And geez those effects are outdated. It's as bad as 2002 Spider-Man in that regard.

I think Fantastic Four 2005's CG manages to be even worse than Spider-Man's. I remember watching the film on tv and seeing a giant close-up of Reed Richards' CG hand slowly stretching out and it's texture was nothing more than a flat shade of skin color. Spider-Man's effects were bouncy and dull but at least it was rich of texture.

At this rate Cracked is being honest about the unreleased 1994 film being the superior Fantastic Four movie.

Yeah, seriously. If they wanted to make a quick, cheap movie to retain the rights to the franchise, they should have just hired Roger Corman again!

At least it would've been finished on budget and time. That's the Corman touch.

It's hard to believe there used to be a time and place where superhero movies looked like...THAT. Also who the hell is New Horizons lol

No matter how you feel about their movies nowadays, Marvel has definitely been through some shit.

While he looks fucking goofy, it is nice to have characters not be in black leather for once and for them to not just be fighting Magneto or racist humans for once.

 

Still, unless they somehow get a dynamite cast to match James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender (who themselves probably don't want to do these movies for too long), the clock is ticking on how long they can stretch the X-Men license with a Gambit movie and another Wolverine solo movie. Of course, Fantastic Four's clock has about another month before it expires.

Still no reviews yet; Fox hasn't pre-screened it. That's never a good sign.

 

So will this be mediocrely bad, or catastrophically, legendarily bad?

The trailer is good in the way it shows Reed as a genius as a child...but it just starts to feel like the first movie. Reed wants to FIX HIS FRIENDS...at least Doom isn't connected to them like the other first one...but I can't say I have high hopes for it yet. and all the ads for it are just annoying me.

 

But Fox seems to be into rebooting series that were made within the last decade!

 

Looking at Rotten Tomatoes, the original has a rating of 27% (critics) and 46% (audience)...so I wonder if it'll be as bad as that!

 

Though for the new one there is a 97% of people who want to see it.

And no one is surprised, although I had the slightest glimmer of hope that it would at least be a *little* bit good. Interesting that the average rating is all the way up at 6/10, though. But... 32 on Metacritic, ew...

 

If Fox has any sense in them (assuming it's a financial disappointment, which is likely), they'll cancel the sequel and bring Apes 3's release back up. I can dream.

It's only 5 reviews so far, but yeah, not surprised in the slightest.

 

My guess is it'll simmer at around 30%.

The idea of super heroes having normal lives was introduced with the Fantastic 4, but many superhero movies have done that so making another F4 movies seems pointless.

It's pretty telling that of all the clips I've seen in commercials and trailers, they're all from the exact same scenes. Plus the fact that all the characters speak with a bland, disinterested tone doesn't help things.
